Overcoming Obstacles

Overcoming Obstacles. 

Have you ever wanted something so bad but there was tough situations and things you have to fight through to get there? Some of these challenges might of seemed impossible to overcome and some of them smaller but still an extremely important part of the process. No matter how old you are or where you’re at in life there’s always a new goal and new challenge we’re facing everyday. Life is like a game if you’re patient and use a good strategy you’ll win but the key to success is being persistent. You’re never a failure until you stop trying.  To become something greater and meet goals many haven’t you’ll have to work harder and understand amazing things take time.

Isaiah 43:19 says “Behold, i am doing new things; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” This is God doing the impossible. You have a purpose. You are meant to do amazing things but only in the time of the Lord. 

As a generation we become overwhelmed by “Timing”. Not being who we believe we should be already. Taking longer to graduate than others, slow to start a family or even slow to find the career we want for our life. Comparing to others timeline is the start to failure. It’s the start of being discouraged because you feel as if you’re falling behind. What could you be falling behind in though? The race of your life is only between you and God so why are we comparing our timing to others? We all live in different life seasons, different lessons and different journeys. Overcoming obstacles is having faith that you’re going to make it through strong and wiser than before. 


Steps to overcoming obstacles:

  1. Take a deep breath
  2. Remember you’re not alone
  3. Losing is not a failure, it’s a lesson
  4. Don’t rush the process 
  5. Remain committed 
  6. keep going


Stay Strong. Have Faith. Pray. & Trust God.
